What Does Money Mean to You? Does thinking about money make you happy? Or does it make you stressed? Do you work too hard, or not enough, and don't understand why? Do you spend impulsively, or hate to part with a dime? A new book can help you understand the patterns of your behavior with money. "The Secret Language of Money" by David Krueger and John Mann (McGraw Hill) is subtitled "How to Make Smarter Financial Decisions and Live a Richer Life." Krueger, a psychiatrist, combines psychology, economics and neuroscience to address questions like the ones above. Because there is a "secret" language of money, many of us make mistakes. Nearly every chapter in the book contains a quiz, designed to help us understand why we do what we do. The quizzes are deceptively simple (such as "What is your current income, and what level of income would it take to insure your happiness and contentment?") It is in the explanations that our patterns are revealed. According to the book, all of us have a "money story," an unconscious tale we tell ourselves about who we are, what money means to us and how much we're worth. The

nse BY David Uffington

problem is the secrets we keep from ourselves about money, whether it's how much credit-card debt we've really run up or the way we rationalize an indulgent purchase. For example, when we make a risky purchase, there is a chemical component to our action, a rush that comes in anticipation of making the purchase. That same chemical reaction shuts down the minute the purchase is made. Krueger shows us how to decipher what our actions really mean. "The Secret Language of Money" is for anyone who's ever been in debt, been rich but unhappy, been caught in an impulse buy/return cycle with merchandise, made promises and bargains about cutting down on spending, been a workaholic or shopped to satisfy feelings of envy or power. In other words, "Secret Language" has something for everyone who spends money. Something to think about: Name five things you truly value. Then ask yourself which of those five things you would trade for money. Your answer says a lot about your relationship with money.

Tai Chi Has Many Health Benefits

A

re you familiar with Tai Chi? I took just enough classes to realize what a wonderful exercise it can be.

Tai Chi (pronounced tie-chee) has 19 gentle arm movements, called "forms," done from one standing pose with only weight shifts from one foot to the other while you do the slow movements. That, along with the deep breathing, is all that needs to be learned. After that it just

requires a little practice to smooth out the movements. Tai Chi doesn't require any equipment or special clothing, weight lifting, running or fast moving, and once you learn it, the movements can be done at home. What I especially appreciate are the health benefits. Research has shown that Tai Chi can help in the recovery of stroke patients who seek to strengthen their muscles and regain their balance. A study at Emory University of 200 people above the age of 70 found that 15 weeks of Tai Chi "significantly reduced" the risk of falls. Another study found Tai Chi increased muscle strength and shoulder flexibility, while yet another showed that Tai Chi is safe even for those who'd had moderate heart failure. Other research showed sleep benefits and even increased mental health. A University of Illinois study revealed that Tai Chi can increase antibody protection after a flu shot. (Seniors tend not to get as much protection from flu shots.) Another benefit was the ability to stand on one leg. Think about that and what it means to your overall sense of balance. In one study there was an 83 percent improvement. If you consider taking Tai Chi classes, be sure to check the instructor's credentials: Experience really does matter. Someone with little experience might not understand the subtleties of the movements as they apply to seniors. ***

Strange By Samantha Weaver

Haleyville, Ala. It commemorates the event every year with a 9-1-1 festival. ■ Vinegar will dissolve the shell of a hard-boiled egg.

BUT TRUE

■ It was American novelist, actor and politician Gore Vidal who made the following observation: "Today's public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can't read them either." ■ Saba, an island in the Dutch West Indies, is the only place in the Caribbean whose native population is predominantly blonde. ■ In Bohemia -- once a country, now a region within the Czech Republic -- it was illegal in the 15th century to sell hops outside the country. In fact, it was considered such a heinous crime that the punishment for violating the law was death. ■ The very first 9-1-1 emergency call was made on Feb. 16, 1968, in the small town of

■ Those who study such things claim that between 10 percent and 20 percent of the Union Army during the Civil War was under the age of 18. Records show that 127 of those soldiers enlisted at the tender age of 13. ■ Are you a somniloquist? You may be one without realizing it -- just ask your significant other if you're not sure. He or she should be able to tell you if you have a habit of talking in your sleep. ■ Much has been made of the epidemic of obesity in the United States. One study of the problem has turned up the following interesting comparison: It seems that the average portion of food served in America is 25 percent larger than that served in France. .

doff of the bonnet (as the Brits would say) and hats off (as we Americans say) to Debbie Reynolds. At age 77 she is still beautiful, and very busy. At present she is taking her nightclub act to several places and working on a museum to hold her collection of Hollywood costumes. Not only her own, but all she can collect from other stars of the past, including Marilyn Monroe's from "The Seven Year Itch." And from someone who has been there, when Debbie Reynolds is in a room, on stage or off, you KNOW she's there. If you're an Elvis Presley fan, Pelican Publishing has a new book due out titled "The Genuine Elvis: Photos and Untold Stories About the King" by Ronnie McDowell, Edie Hand and Joe Meadow. Many pictures, many untold stories and everything else you can or can't imagine. It hits the bookstores July 1. Natalie Cole came through her kidney transplant operation and is recuperating. However, she won't be touring for some time. Her medics told her to "take it easy" for a while, but that doesn't mean she can't vocalize and keep those "pipes" clear at home. In about four months, she should be airing them in public once again. John Lithgow is back in action on the tube, joining the cast of "Dexter" on Showtime. He will play Walter Simmons, Miami's latest serial murderer and new nemesis of Dexter Morgan. And Kristin Chenowith is looking forward to playing the lead in "Twelve Men of Christmas," a Lifetime movie based on the novel "Decent Exposure." Big doings in Las Vegas at the CineVegas Awards when John Voight and Willem Dafoe are feted for their body of work. Two finer actors you couldn't find anywhere, but not many have fathered an Angelina Jolie. And speaking of Angelina, I've been a Patricia Cornwell fan for years. Read all of her mystery books, and now I'm happy to learn Angelina has signed to make a movie based on one of her books. Which one I don't know as yet. What I do know is Angie and Brad continue their happy relationship and house full of kids. Rumor was going round that Brad and Angelina were buying the house in the New Orleans Garden District where "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" was shot. I checked it out, and "t'aint so"! Many of you may remember the wonderful antics of mime Marcel Marceau. Now comes word that the battered top hat with the single red flower he always wore went on the block at a Paris auction house. No word as yet as to how much it went for, but you can bet your last American dollar it sold for big bucks! Offers pouring in for Chris Pine. While he decides, he's flexing his acting muscles on the legitimate stage in west Los Angeles. Here's a big star who can ACT. Lots of those in the old days were big stars, but not big actors.

BITS 'N' PIECES: Looking back, it's hard to realize how many stars died in ac-

cidents. Jayne Mansfield was killed in a car crash. Likewise James Dean. Carole Lombard died in a plane crash. Vic Morrow killed by the rotor blade of a helicopter when filming "Twilight Zone." Grace Kelly died a car crash. Leslie Howard was shot down during World War II. Natalie Wood drowned. Unfortunately, there were more. (c) 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

80s FLASHBACK

301-466-8989

Continued from pg. 1

• The Care Bears were originally created for use in American Greetings’ cards back in 1981. Care Bears plush toys followed the characters and eventually the characters got their own cartoon series that ran from 1985-1988 and three Care Bears movies in 1985, 1986 and 1987. The Care Bears movie was one of the first to be based directly off a toy line. The first Care Bears movie was a success with Hollywood backing. Mickey Rooney was the voice of the narrator. • Stacy Ferguson got her start long before she was Fergie in The Black Eyed Peas. As a child actress, she played Stacy on Disney’s KIDS Incorporated from 1984-1989. Another actress to get her start on the show was Jennifer Love Hewitt. • Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes were the only actors to appear on every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Stephen Hawking is the only person to appear as himself on the show. He appeared in a scene where he played cards against Data, Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. • Mr. T’s phrase “I pity the fool” first appeared in 1982’s Rocky III. It was an episode of Silver Spoons that provided him with another of his famous catchphrases – “First name Mister. Middle name period. Last name T.” • America’s favorite cartoon family, The Simpsons, first appeared as animated shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show in 1987. It first aired, as we know it today, back in 1989. • Jim Carrey was considered for the role of Ferris Bueller. • The 80s wouldn’t have been the same without Warwick Davis. Davis played Wicket the Ewok in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, a member of the Goblin Corps in 1986’s Labyrinth and Willow Ufgood in 1988’s Willow. • More on Cheers – Norman was Norm’s middle name. His first name was Hillary. • Cliff was not originally a character on the show. Actor John Ratzenberg auditioned for the role of Norm but he was though unsuitable for the part. He asked the writers if there was a bar know it all and improvised a character on spot. He so impressed the producers that they had the character written for him. • Alan Thicke is probably best known for his role of Jason Seaver on Growing Pains. Here are a few things you might now know about him. He wrote and sang both theme songs for Diff’rent Strokes. • Indiana Jones’s bullwhip was sold at auction at Christie’s in London for $43,000. • Estelle Getty, who played Sophia on the Golden Girls, was actually fifteen months younger than Bea Arthur, who played her daughter Dorothy. It took Estelle forty-five minutes to get into makeup every day.

• Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing on Friends, guest starred in several episodes of Growing Pains as Carol’s boyfriend. • Steven Spielberg personally screened E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for Ronald and Nancy Reagan at the White House since they were both fans of the film. • More on E.T. – one of the children in the Halloween scene is dressed like Yoda. Star Wars director George Lucas returned the favor by including E.T.’s fellow race of aliens in the`1999 Star Wars prequel The Phantom Menace. • Because of his prior commitments to Family Ties, Michael J. Fox filmed nearly all of Back To The Future at night. Day scenes were shot on the weekend. • Cliff Huxtable was ranked #1 on TV Guide’s List of 50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time. • Michael Jackson’s Thriller (1982) is the world’s biggest selling album of all time. It has sold over 100 million copies worldwide and is certified 28x Platinum in the United States. Jackson won seven Grammy Awards for the album. • The Ewoks are speaking a mix of the Filipino Tagalog language and the nomadic Chinese language Kalmuck. • Did you know that a Smurf is officially three apples tall? • Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure was director Tim Burton’s feature length film debut. • Actor Billy Zane was originally cast as the role of Johnny in Dirty Dancing, but he couldn’t dance well, so the role went to Patrick Swayze. • Because we just can’t get enough of Mr. T – do you know what inspired Mr. T’s trademark hairstyle? He saw a picture of an African Mandika warrior sporting the hairstyle in an issue of National Geographic. • Did you know Mr. T also had his own brand of cereal, his own cartoon series and two comic books based on him? • The entire Millennium Falcon was built life sized for the first and only time in The Empire Strikes Back (1980). • O.J. Simpson was considered for the role of The Terminator (1984). • The theme song “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by the Simple Minds was recorded specifically for The Breakfast Club (1985). • The noises the gopher makes in Caddyshack (1980) are actually dolphin noises and the same ones used in 1964’s Flipper 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

Blossoms

A

few years back I tried to become a gardener. I think of it as my big science experiment. I did all right for a beginner, but still left a lot to be desired.

My squash came down with a fungus. Many times I had to snatch my cantaloupe and eggplant out of the mouths of hungry turtles, and one pumpkin survived out of the whole packet of seeds I planted. The lone pumpkin prematurely fell off the vine in August, as did our hopes for an autumn pumpkin on the front porch. I planted another garden the next spring and compulsively checked on its progress. The tomatoes didn't look much larger than when I planted them. Flower seeds germinated, but I became frustrated by not seeing blossoms. A corn stalk sprouted. One out of 20 planted. I felt impatient. Sometimes I'm like that as a mother, too. This morning I passed by my son's bedroom and noticed that his drawers were closed, but every article of clothing he owns stuck out. The clothes I folded neatly yesterday are now wrinkled and smooshed. "I don't know how many times I have to show him how to do this," I grumbled as I refolded. I picked up a wet towel in my daughter's bedroom floor, gritching, too, as I hung it up in the bathroom to dry. Keep your feet off the furniture. Remember to be helpful. Clean up your messes. These are lessons I've taught for years. But sometimes parenting does feel like one step forward two steps back. And you wonder when you are going to see growth. If I'm going to keep this gardening comparison going, I must admit that when I stepped into my garden years back, I did see progress. The seeds became plants, and if I'd taken my measuring stick out I would have been amazed at just how quickly things really did grow. My disappointment comes when I expect too much, too quickly, and forget about the joy that comes in watching something beautiful gradually unfold. In gardening and in parenting. My son's clothes may look as if he slept in them, but when I survey his room I see that his bed is made, and I didn't have to ask him. He also fed his dog without being told. The towel may be mildewing on my daughter's bedroom floor, but I didn't have to ask her to get up and get ready this morning for an appointment. She popped out of bed and into the shower on her own. I also overheard her encouraging her little brother. Blossoms are there ... if I'm willing to look for them.

DOVER, Del. -- Sam Hornish Jr. is getting the hang of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Though he was runner-up to Regan Smith in the Raybestos Rookie of the Year race, Hornish was only 35th in the final standings. He has stuck with the NASCAR experiment, and recently his performances have notably improved. He finished ninth at Phoenix, sixth at Richmond, 16th at Charlotte and 13th in Dover's Autism Speaks 400.

"The better you do, the more consistently that you're in the top 15, the top 10, you're going to get more and more attention. Obviously, I want that because it means we're running well, but as far as needing it, keeping the sponsor (Mobil 1) happy is the first thing, and then also keeping myself happy as far as how we do on the race track are the two most important things." Part of Hornish's transition has involved adapting to NASCAR's longer races.

Hornish, from Defiance, Ohio, has quite the impressive resume. He is a former winner of the Indianapolis 500 and a three-time IndyCar champion. When he struggled in NASCAR, many observers anticipated that he might return to the open-wheel ranks, but the challenge of adapting to stock cars appealed to him.
